I myself have never understood non-foodies. How can one not love flavours, spices, aromas and all the cultural nuances and memories that come with every bite? Dining is an experience meant to be savoured and is even more fun when shared with loved ones. Dining around a table means sharing, conversing, bonding and learning. A dish can tell you so much about a person, a culture, and a country. It speaks volumes of a nation's history and is an art-form on its own. Skilled hands are trained over years or are born out of pure passion and practice. Professional chefs and home cooks alike, from young stars to grandmothers, have been cooking up meals filled with emotion and have truly made us foodies, happy.
Through Foodie Finds, we ask our epicurean friends to share their favourites. In this feature, we tackle takeout and delivery. Hear what Joey de Llarazabel Blanco aka @chichajo or the blogger behind 80 Breakfasts has to say. She shares her go-to shops for takeout here:
The day the Lagrima closed in March, at the advent of ECQ, my husband and I lost one of our top favourite taco joints in the city. So when they reopened towards the end of May as Lagrima Bodega, ready for delivery, we rejoiced! Some favourites (although we love pretty much everything Lagrima can throw at us!): Buche, lengua, al pastor, surtido, chorizo, chicharrones, and shrimp tacos. Shrimp super burritos with guacamole inside and the avocado tostada are also fantastic!
